Hey Maker! is a new creative collective in the Tweed Valley.
We hope to inspire our community to become active in helping us further enhance Murwillumbah as a vibrant artistic destination. We intend to enliven our town centre by inviting all to interact with our fun Pop Up Art Installations using recycled materials and the most simple of art resources.
Artists and creatives BelindaSmith, Kathy Egan, Jo Olive and Ellie Beck are the founding members of Hey Maker! We got together to form a collective in response to the growing number of retail stores in Murwillumbah closing their doors due to the economic downturn. Recently it was reported that almost 32 out of 70 shops in the town centre are empty and up for lease. We see this as an opportunity to use empty shop fronts to attract attention and benefit the community.
